Rihanna enlists RAYE for new album

2 Jul

Rihanna has enlisted the songwriting services of RAYE for her new album.

The British singer/songwriter – born Rachel Keen – is known for her singles “The Line,” “Shhh,” “I, U, Us,” “Bet You Wish” and “Hotbox.” She has also provided guest vocals on Jonas Blue’s “By Your Side” and Jax Jones’ “You Don’t Know Me,” peaking to numbers 15 and 3 on the UK Singles Chart, respectively.

In addition to prepping her forthcoming debut album under Universal Music Group / Polydor Records, RAYE has contributed to the next projects by Little Mix [Syco Music], Rita Ora [Atlantic], Mabel McVey [Polydor], Era Istrefi [Ultra Music], Rudimental [Atlantic], Anne-Marie [Major Tom’s Music], Naughty Boy [Virgin EMI] and Ellie Goulding [Polydor].

Her previous songwriting credits include Blonde’s “Just for One Night,” 5 After Midnight’s “Up in Here,” Tara Carosielli’s “Money,” Jax Jones’ “You Don’t Know Me,” Charli XCX’s “After the Afterparty,” Matoma’s “The Wave,” Snakehips’ “Don’t Leave,” and M.O.’s “Not in Love.”

Meanwhile, Rihanna is expected to release her ninth studio collection later this year via Westbury Road Entertainment and Roc Nation Records.

The still-untitled collection serves as the follow-up to 2016’s “Anti,” which topped the US Billboard 200 Albums Chart and spawned four singles in the shape of “Work,” “Kiss it Better,” “Needed Me” and “Love on the Brain.”
